  1. She obviously meant text adventure with graphics (graphic adventure) which seems like a reasonable claim. The game you mention is obviously an early RPG and I would argue that they have always been separate genres.
  2. This seems rather definitive. https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2018-03-19/doctor-who-christopher-eccleston-russell-t-davies/
  3. He'd previously done 'The Second Coming' with RTD.
  4. Who really cares what a console looks like? There's always someone ready to declare it ugly.
  5. That was one I didn't have... I've just watched a video of that. The Joust I had played better/faster with better sounds and the scale of the sprites compared to the background was more accurate. I have occasionally seen screenshots of Jouste and questioned my memory but watching it on Youtube has removed all doubt.
  6. I was certain I had a pirate copy of this back in the day. Having such things wasn't unusual back then, see also Crystal Castles by 'Thundervision'.
  7. Wan't the PS2 unpredictable with some RGB scart cables?
  8. It was a slippy slope but he plumbed the depths.
  9. Half Life being featured in this issue is analogous with Manic Miner being featured in issue 1. Just saying.
  10. To be fair the programmer of Fire Track, Nick Pelling (AKA Orlando), was considered to be one of the best programmers on the BBC micro. http://www.beebgames.com/npinterv.php
  11. This guy makes a lot of good observations about the merits of various versions, particularly with regard to controls. I was disappointed to note there was no Amiga version featured but I imagine it's interchangeable with the PC version and he's portraying a more US centric view and the Amiga didn't really make it in a big way over there. The Amiga version certainly looks the same as the PC version and the controls were excellent.
  12. Now released. https://csdb.dk/release/?id=188753
  13. No, HDMI does not 100% support the Spectrum's native video timing. A buffer in the FPGA hardware would be nice but it's a hardware fix for a shortcoming of the HDMI standard. Use a different connection FFS.
